Finally finished run 3! I was doing ok until the last 5 minute run, when I got a stitch and my legs began to feel heavy and tired. But I pushed through and continued running and finished it (the stitch magically disappeared). This week has been very, very difficult and I'll probably do the podcast at least one more time - especially since I didn't technically finish run 2 because of ankle and hip pains.
Does it get better? Not easier, just better.
